Crystal Clark travels from Georgia to visit her aunt Kat who owns a cattle ranch in beautiful Yampa Valley, CO. Crystal meets the rugged ranch foreman, Luke Weber, and immediately personalities and upbringings set them apart. The local people know little about Southern graces and are unsure of Crystal. Will life's challenges and tradegies thrust Crystal and Luke together or send Crystal back to her Southern society? I know when I am captured by a novel when I am visualizing the scenery, getting angry or cold when the characters are, seeing the truth of their lives through events that occur. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Absolutely wonderful! I will be reading more of Maggie Brendan's novels!
When I saw the cover of this book, I was very excited to read it. However, it turned out to be a very corny, mushy story. There was no plot and the characters were very shallow. I did not enjoy this book and I doubt if I will read Maggie Brendan's books again.
If I hadn't already bought all three books in the series, I wouldn't have ordered another one. However, in the second and third books of the seriess, I would give a much higher rating because those books seem to have much more interesting plots.
